    Yes, l might sign up for that, considering the stacking advertising taking place, or l get one .....ad, that fast clicking will not remove anymore then another one.

    It is getting so bad if l come across a music video with this s***t, l will just skip it, than tolerate it.

    One stupid ad, you can skip was tolerable, but this isn't, or it is more greed than being reasonable.

    I hope they succeed.

      Yyou tube doesn't give a crap about content creators . Only advertisers . And the issue tag pointed out . The multiple adds or the 30 second unskippable adds .

      And the hidden adds that seem to pop up right when you are doing something else . Why in a ten minute video do I deal with an hours worth of adds .

      In any case content creators really have no power how many times does YouTube have to demonitize you without explanation .

      And now that the general feeling is that social media you tube face book Twitter . Patreon . Are attempting to silence people with different pitical views .

      By labalekng all different political views as hate speech .

      The only real recourse for the unions is to go after the advertisers

      It isn't a matter of free speech . It is youtube using their Monopoly position to get out of paying content creators any way they can.

      It is just a bad idea to but your main income in the hands .or the coding of a constantly changing algorythym .

      Am I blaming the victims .YouTube has been doing this constantly for almost 5 years ..or sense shortly after it opened up monitization to everyone

    YT have backtracked a little, (the ad on the video, allows you to get rid of it, without having to full screen it first) but other new annoying issues like 2 ad's, with some BS thing to click so you go to the next one, still remains, (very annoying, l mean who wants to click on something to see a stupid ad, well, stupid, loud ad).

    Anyone who doesn't run an Adblocker on YouTube deserves to have ads forced on them.

    Arguing with an idiot is like playing chess with a pigeon.
    It'll just knock over all the pieces, poop on the board, and strut about like it's won anyway.
